2004 Corporate Advocate of the Year

Cisco Systems

CWLA is pleased to honor Cisco Systems as its 2004 Corporate Advocate of the Year. Cisco Systems, based in San Jose, California, is the worldwide leader in networking for the Internet. The company's extensive partnership with Inwood House, a CWLA member agency, has included fundraising, marketing, agencywide technology enhancements, job readiness and employment opportunities, and opportunities for technology literacy. Bill Hartwell, Director of Operations, accepted this award for Cisco Systems at CWLA's National Conference in Washington, DC.

The four cornerstone goals of Cisco's corporate philanthropy program are to overcome the cycle of poverty and dependence, to create educational opportunities, to promote a culture of volunteerism, and to transform the way nonprofit work is accomplished and supported.

Since 1996, Cisco Systems has been a key partner with Inwood House in helping impoverished young women take charge of their lives and become healthy and self-reliant adults. Through the personal involvement, generosity, technical assistance, and advocacy of the Cisco Systems leadership, the Cisco Foundation, and Cisco employees, Inwood House has enhanced and expanded its program services and strengthened its base of support. At the same time, it has been able to increase the public's understanding of the impact of child poverty and the strengths and assets of inner-city youth.
